Accessing the Public LIbrary

Lee County Library is opening for pick up! You can put books on hold and then go to some locations and they will bring them out. The location off Mohawk is one of the locations that is opening in Cape Coral right now. See the link below for more information and directions on how to use this pick up process. Also, Mrs. Gamboa has more information in her Google Classroom.


The following link is to the children's page of the Lee County Library System website, which includes information about how to get a temporary library card, Stay at Home Storytime, AR links, and additional links to learning resources and learning materials:

A note from Mrs. Arroyo...

Mrs. Arroyo hopes you join her for the Virtual Workout next week. Also, she created a fantastic video of our PE memories from this year.

Bus Transportation Application for 2020-2021 School Year

Parents must complete a separate form for each child in their family that is requesting transportation. Deadline is end of business day (5:00 pm) on June 15, 2020 for guaranteed transportation for the first day of school. If you miss the deadline, transportation cannot be guaranteed for the first two weeks of school.


Fourth Quarter Interims

Interims are available for parents who have already set up and have an established FOCUS account to view their student information, they just have to log in to the FOCUS account and the interim should be viewable on the dashboard.

If parents have NOT already set up an established FOCUS account to view their student information, they will have to get their parent account verified. The verification process may take up to a few weeks. In order to set up a parent account, parents will need the Student ID number, (NOT the Social Security Number). If you do not know your child's Student ID, please reach out to your child's teacher. Teachers will only be sending student ID's to the email account that they have been using with the parent all year.

See the attachment below for details on the Parent FOCUS account verification process.

Taking Care of Your Family's Emotional Well Being

This week, we are highlighting some resources from Mind Up. They have put together some resources for our students, while they are at home.

Student Monitoring with Google Accounts/Chromebooks

Please remind your student that the use of their Google account (@oasishs.org) and school issued Chromebooks are monitored for inappropriate use. Because we continue to get alerts, even while students are home, we will be contacting parents to inform them of the inappropriate search or site that a student attempted to reach.
